Living Room Dispatch: Harlem Arts Salon with Toni Morrison, Ishmael Reed, Mildred Howard, at the home of Margaret & Quincy Troupe - this SUNDAY

Join Open Space columnist Chris Cobb on Sunday for an experimental live stream from the New York living room of Margaret Porter Troupe and Quincy Troupe, as the Harlem Arts Salon hosts Nobel Laureate, novelist, and grande dame of American letters Toni Morrison. Joining Ms. Morrison in conversation will be preeminent poet, writer, and MacArthur “genius award” recipient (and Bay Area resident) Ishmael Reed; Bay Area artist Mildred Howard, known for her sculptural installations and mixed media assemblage work, will be cooking! We hear that guests are coming from points as far-flung as Tokyo, Oklahoma, and Montreal.

We love living rooms at Open Space, and we love talking with artists and writers in them, and this is a fly-on-the-wall opportunity like no other. Very excited to watch and listen in this weekend.

JOIN US, here on Open Space, or on Google+: Sunday, February 24, 11 a.m. west/2 p.m. east.

  • You can undoubtedly visit your an understanding of the task you are writing. The planet wants far more excited freelance writers such as you exactly who are not fearful to mention that believe that. At all times abide by your coronary heart.

    Ah well, I shall tune in over the internet then. Thanks, Chris.

  • Unfortunately it was sold out within hours. It’s in a living room, so they took as many people as they could…but like I said it sold out quickly.

  • Tess Thackara says:

    Oh my gosh! I am in NYC, is this open to non-virtual guests?!
